in with michele obama, a portion of michele obama's speech, what did you think of it? >> it was a great speech, it really was. so many personal anecdotes you could visualize. we were talking last week about how ann romney said a lot of great things about mitt romney but never gave you the visuals. john said it best. who in america are in that convention hall -- or in that convention hall watching the speech didn't get the image of a loving father struck with ms, seeing his two children sat the top of the stairs and fighting and struggling to get up those stairs to hug his children at the end of the day or fighting and struggling to get out of bad to go to work to give them a slice of the american dream. it was an absolutely fantastic speech. and the great line, absolutely loved the line, that being president doesn't change who you are, it reveals who you are. >> very personal, very revealing but it also might have accomplished something in terms of touching on some key areas that might have needed some work, not that the president, you would think, had a problem with the women's vote. >> right
-- here is a picture of the president and his daughters watching michelle obama from the white house last night. you can see the tweet that his campaign sent out last night. next call comes from michigan, independent line. caller: i think they should be the first ladies, supportive from the outside. i really don't feel that this buildup is necessary. just bring out the president and let him give his pitch and let's get on with the show. some of the stuff that she said makes no sense to me. with all the dinners and he is a way so much, i would have liked to of heard from melia and sasha and their impressions of their dead. how their time in washington has been as compared to chicago and how they are getting along in school and if they're looking forward to a second term. she looked very pretty and she is made up and she is dressed but do we need this? host: on your screen is a live picture of the inside of the time warner cable arena in charlotte at the democratic national convention and it convenes again tonight at 5:00 p.m. bill clinton will be the closer tonight to deliver the nominati
accomplished for the very -- to the various speakers from michelle obama and the headliners, michelle obama and bill clinton joe biden, barack obama and a lot of the secondary speakers. mission accomplished. they also had to -- at the same time, while they were at it, sort of a secondary goal is make sure the people understood what lies they had heard in tampa and what the truth really was. i think that mission was accomplished as well. so huge success i believe in getting the message out. they were really focused. they were really on message. when it comes to the speakers, you know, the evening the major speakers were all there between 10:00 and 11:00 east coast time. 7:00 to 8:00 on the west coast. but there were -- the secondary speakers, it was funny. each night, there was sort of one person that blew the place up and really lit the place up. and became an instant star. the first night was duvall patrick, governor of massachusetts. the night after him so wednesday night was congressman emmanuel clever from maryland and l
for him to do much better than the headliner last night. first lady michelle obama who offered a personal perspective on the values that guide her husband every day in the white house. >> for barack, these issues aren't political. they are personal. barack knows the american dream because he's lived it. and he wants everyone in this country, everyone, to have the same opportunity no matter who we are or where we are from or what we look like or who we love. >> if the first lady michelle obama sought to reignite the flame for the president earlier, massachusetts governor deval patrick aimed to reinvigorate the fight. challenging supporters to stand with the president against attacks on everything from his foreign policy to health care reform. >> if we want to win elections in november and keep our country moving forward, if we want to earn the privilege to lead, my message is this. it is time for democrats to grow a backbone and stand up for what we believe! >> that fiery speech raised the bar important those that followed. but it was keynote speaker san antonio mayor julian castro that to
michelle obama. [ cheers and applause ] >> one by one, he dissected the romney campaign's major arguments against president obama, including attacks about health care reform and medicare made by vice presidential candidate paul ryan. >> that $716 billion is exactly to the dollar the same amount of medicare savings that he had in his own budget. [ applause ] >> it takes some brass to attack a guy for doing what you did. >> reporter: he went on, addressing welfare reform and the economy. >> in tampa, the republican argument against the president re-election was actually pretty simple. pretty snappy. it went something like this. we left him a total mess. he hadn't cleaned it up fast enough, so fire him and put us back in. >> reporter: he acknowledged the economy is still in recovery. but he asks -- >> are we better off than we were when he took office? >> reporter: president clinton did work in a plug or two for his own economic performance in the '90s. >> people ask me all the time how we got our budgets passed. what new ideas did we bring to washington? i always bring a one-word answer. ar
clinton had to say. bill clinton hit a home run, michelle obama hit a home run. now it's barack obama to carry it forward. he can't get by with a ground ruled double tonight. he these hit a home run. i mean, they've set a bar that is that high. i mean, there have been two exceptional nights, michelle obama and bill clinton. and while david and i were quite admiring ofoverno christie in tampa, there was nobody at the republican event that established anything to the same standard, i think, that barack obama needs to do. >> ifill: the republican campaign officials told me that the first night with michelle obama was supposed to be about heart and values and the second night was the prosecution and what's tonight supposed to be about with the president? >> i hope it's about the future. it better be. as you say, we know about what's in him, we saw the argument against the republicans, i went back and read the speech this morning and when i was looking for what the future was going to be, there was nothing. there was one sentence. so that better be what this is about. a candidate for offic
of it is michele obama. the smallest component is barack obama himself and his speech. >> there's a big bill factor, is in their? >> besides michelle obama at the convention, i thought clinton was too self-indulgent, but it turned out to be like one of his state of the union addresses where the germans on that people like is when the discussion. i thought obama was flat. apparently it doesn't matter. we need to wait a week and a half to get a true sense. >> once said that we do know about his is ohio. obama, mitt romney, 50%, 40% to mitt romney. is this only logical, a state that is highly unionized. >> especially the kids come and i said this rich or poor, that the romney campaign has yet to articulate to employee working people. if the romney campaign had relied on what has been on your pages and not on wall street journal editorial pages,. >> but the 50-point plan that everybody discounted and thorough way. it was too complicated for the journalists out there. does he have it right? >> he has welded onto a five-point plan. but i think it turns out that he didn't spend enough time out of conventi
over town. we just heard a variety of the democrats bad mouthing mitt romney. last night michele obama did not mention mitt romney's name. the first half of her speech could have been from a conservative because it is personal responsibility and the second half about her husband and why shoohe should have the key to camp david four more years. >> so many people had a hand in our success. from the teachers who inspired us and the janitors who kept our school clean. barack refused to lits lis to folks who told him to leave health reform another day and another president. he didn't care whether it was easy to do politically. that's not how he was raised and i hear the determination in his voice he tells me. you will not believe what folks are going through. it is not right. we have to work to fix this and we have so much more to do. >> brian: i think she was strong. she was poise and delivered a great message and the delivers the young family growing nup the white house and needs more time. i thought one thing everybody talked about the mayor of san antonio. julian castro and i think when
and first lady michelle obama prime time speeches got rave reviews, the platform fight and hate-filled rhetoric from a few delegates have been a problem. three prominent democrats from different states had to apologize for separate interviews they compared republican and paul ryan to nazis and the chairman of the paul beach county democrat mark allen seigel said he was sorry after he said this in an interview with the "patriot update." >> the worst possible ally of the jewish state is the fundamental christians who want crews to die and concert and bring on the second coming. it's a full friendship. >> he has take an leigh of absence but some want his resignation now. now that he is officially the nominee can spend $150 he put in the bank for the general election. now he can begin to spend it and massive ad lift tomorrow for what amounts to the final sprint on the air and on the ground to election day. >> bret: carl come ron with governor romney. thank you. secret service is looking in the case of democratic dill gait who said she -- delegate who said she would like to kill mitt
're going to see ann romney, we're going to see michelle obama as two of the most effective figures in this campaign. >> not two of the most, the two most effective campaigners in both campaigns. i don't think there's any question about that. michelle obama will lead it off next week in charlotte for her husband. i happen to believe, and you know the kind of family in which i have been raised, i'm living with all women, and i have been witness to this both in my wife and my daughters and now my grand daughters, i think this is the century of women. i really do believe that. >> hooray! >> there's going to be more gains made by more women across every part of our lives. cultural, political, and economic. and i think that there is even among some republican women out there, that that party doesn't quite buy into that yet. i mean, there are extraordinary achievements made by nikki haley and condi rice and everyone else. but the real issue on this campaign, for women, will be will social issues, or economic issues, will one trump the other? because the social issues are very important to
the country. i thought this was a very well orchestrated convention with michelle obama giving us more insight into barack obama the man. followed by bill clinton talking about the obama record on the economy and trying to bring people together. and then teeing it up for president obama to talk about what's next. and i thought that was very powerful. >> but you know, mo, the first lady did do a great job in her speech. bill clinton did an amazing job as well. the criticism of the president whilhe set certain goals and said this is how many js i want to create, this is what wae concerned,he environment is concerned, he didn't go into specifics and lay out how he's going to achieve those goals, mo. thatas folks. and th were disappointed he didn't use that venue to do it. >> well, look, ts speech was really the first stop in the general election campaign. and this -- i don't believe -- i know there's a lot of people wondering what kind of bounce either side is going to get. i don't believe there is going to be much bounce for either side because i believe this is going to be a continuous conversa
not to the united nations, but tv studio of abc "the view" to tabe a joint appearance with first lady michelle obama. that leads to heavy lifting to secretary of state hillary clinton. who has dozen of meetings planned here. >> we have no scheduled. >> mr. obama has zero. sharp departure from last year when he used the backdrop to have no less than 13 one-on-ones with world leader leaders. >> the president has in the last few weeks had extensive consultation with foreign leaders including the leaders of egypt, israel, yemen, turkey, libya. those consultations will continue. >> they pounced on the comment about the terror attack on libya on the 9/11 anniversary. >> i was pretty certain that there will be bumps in the road. in a lot of places, one organizing principle has been islam. >> jay carney was saying that president was not making clear progress wouldn't come in a straight line. >> again, i would say what i said to dan, there is a certain desperate attempt grasp it. word and phrases to find the political advantage. in this case, it's offensive. >> after declining a request from netanyahu to mee
: the best advocates for the candidates in both of these conventions have been their wives. michelle obama gave a stellar performance earlier this week, and you knew that the democrats just had to bring her back for an encore. that will be happening in just a few minutes when she returns to the podium to introduce her husband. the convention wasn't supposed to be here at all tonight. the plan was to have the president's speech outdoors in the stadium where the carolina panters play. there was to be a crowd of 65, 000, but they canceled that because of rain in the forecast. well, here is a live shot of that stadium now. it is dark, and there is not a drop of rain falling in the vicinity here in charlotte. we are now back in this arena. instead of a crowd of 65,000 listening to the president's acceptance speech, similar to what we saw in 2008 at mile high stadium in denver, we will have a crowd of about 20,000 in this arena. earlier today, mitt romney, the candidate of the republican party, said that he would not be watching mr. obama's acceptance speech. nancy cordes is down on the conventi
've raised this question before so i'm not being critical here. maybe michelle obama ought to think about running for president. >> she should run for office but she says she doesn't want to. [ applause ] >> obama: i -- look, michelle would be terrific but temperamentally, i just don't think that -- >> it is absolutely true. it takes a lot of patience to be the president of the united states. i'm not that patient. >> bill: i gotta tell you that was a risky move by obama. my wife doesn't have the right temperament to be president. >> when was the last time you called carol temperamental? >> bill: i wouldn't go there. that frying pan would be bouncing off my head. i was surprised. it's a good thing michelle took that the right way. >> yeah, that was thin ice to go out on. >> bill: that was. thin ice indeed. >> bill: joe cirincione is going to talk to us about what the president might accomplish up at the united nations and what the latest is on libya and syria. dave zeron our sports guru, we share him with the "nat
. michelle obama, bill clinton, president obama did a better job making their case, selling their case to the american people. one other thing, though. that 47% remark governor romney made at that fund-raiser back in may that was released just last week, that's breaking through. i was in michigan last week. when you travel the country and talk to people, if you talk to pollsters they say it has hurt governor romney again on that fundamental question, who would best handle the economy and who represents your values. that has hurt. >> gloria, thank you. john king, thanks. >>> we got breaking news ahead on the program. for months, we have been reporting on charities that take your money and then don't deliver on their promises. tonight, the single largest fund-raising company in the world, quadriga art, will now have to answer questions from the u.s. senate about their financials. [ woman ] it's 32 minutes to go time, and the candidate's speech is in pieces all over the district. the writer's desktop and the coordinator's phone are working on a joke with local color. the secure cloud just
. and first lady michelle obama will speak as well. all of that begins on tuesday, three nights, the third night being in that bank of america stadium in charlotte. so we'll have it all live for you here on c-span. marshall, texas now, kevin, republican, good morning to you. >> caller: good morning. i think it's important to remember that in 2006, democrats took control of congress. so we have split power at that time. george bush did what george bush does. he reaches across the aisle. he had the prescription drug program. they raised cap standards, they raised minimum wage. george left, you know. and what did he get for it? and everyone -- once the liberal programs fail, everyone wants to blame the conservative in charge for it. and once obama flipped over, he went united congress and president, all democrat. they went way, way far left. i think people rose up in 2010 and said, no! no, we're not going to go that way. and, yet, what we heard from the left is they're racist. that's why -- that's why they're racist. that's wrong. >> host: thanks for calling. we'll hear from the president and
. michelle obama gave a very personal and good speech for her husband. president obama is will give a wonderful speech tonight he is very good. and at the end of the day this is what happen what matters. monday we have the announcement that gas prices doubled and we have the highest labor in the country. and we have the highest deficit. when the speeches are done tonight tomorrow we will get the jobs report and it will show 43 months in a row over 8% unemployment. 23 million americans are out of work. at the end of the day, the speakers are nice and this is a serious election in serious times. and it comes down to whether or not president obama's policies have worked and when you look at the numbers by any real measure you have to say they have not worked. >> so the campaign seemed to be painting two different visions of america. based on perhaps similar experiences that people have undergone over the last couple of years. the romney campaign says perhaps are you not better off than you were four years ago and the obama campaign is saying listen it is tough but we inherited a deep m
tonight. michelle obama saying he is the same guy you elected four years ago and he's been through a lot and he hasn't changed. the other thing i want to point out the most retweeted line of the night was, made in america. something that the republicans did not have in any of their speeches. this president is amazing. he consumes the room. he doesn't miss anything. and i think that he made a real point tonight talking about manufacturing, talking about american jobs and made in america, that got retweeted more. it was 52,000 tweets per minute, according to the gov.org people that were out there paying attention to that. that is a record, by the way. >> why we are on new miracle analysis. halfway through the speech we got the response from the romney/ryan campaign which proves it was written before they got the speech, which you can definitely tell because the first line of it is tonight president obama laid out the choice in this election, making the case for more of the same policies that have worked in the past four years. the statement is on your screen there. the whole point of the f
long before he married michelle obama, he had a ring. he was secretly married. it must mean he was secretly gay married? okay. somebody said when he met him his gaydar went off. he believed mr. obama and his college roommate were lovers. just look at this photo. straight males don't sit on so
who on the other side -- michelle obama knows him as a man, this man the vice president knows him as a president like nobody else knows him. and i think he communicated that tonight. >> i think that -- i totally agree with you. i think that bridges to something that ed said which is important which is nobody needs joe biden to be introduced to them. joe biden has a familiarity as a politician who first ran for president what 1987? >> yeah. >> it was in the 80s. he's been around for a long time. he is a familiar figure. but i actually think part of this reassurance was at the best and one of his ad-libs. that didn't always work. that's when he had a lot of trouble stumbling over his words in some case. he did ad-lib at one point and said folks, i've watched him. he never waivers. he asks the same thing over and over again. how will this work for working families. and said that's what's inside this man. that is what makes this man tick. he's saying trust me, you trust me. i'm joe biden. you know who i am. and you trust my judgment. and i'm telling you this guy is the real deal. to h
